dianaFlowW Columbia, SCAge: 45-54Gender: female5 Stars Out Of 5A Wunderbar Amish Classic!September 13, 2016dianaFlowW Columbia, SCAge: 45-54Gender: femaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5Eloquent and masterful storyteller, Sarah Price, pens a unique Amish tale superbly blended with Jane Austen's classic, Mansfield Park, and distinctly makes it her own! In this timeless tale we perceive that the road to love is oftentimes very rocky and appearances can be very deceiving.
When her father can no longer provide for his family he sends Fanny Price to live with her aunt's family in Mount Hope, Ohio. Never feeling a part of the Bontrager family, Fanny is basically a loner -- not taking part in the young people's activities and singings -- but choosing instead to stay at home and do whatever work is needed on the large prosperous farm. Befriended only by her aunt's stepson, Elijah, Fanny so yearns for their special friendship to turn into something deeper.
However, when two strangers visit their Amish community -- the lovely, Mary Coblentz and her charming, flirtatious brother, Henry -- Elijah's attentions are swiftly diverted, much to Fanny's dismay. What ensues are plenty of twists and turns as the roguish Henry causes plenty of jealousies to arise, Elijah becomes besotted with Mary, and the heartbroken Fanny finds herself with a suitor as well. Will he help her to forget the only man she has ever loved?
Author Sarah Price has written a fascinating tale of deceit, betrayal, and unrequited love that finely parallels Jane Austen's classic masterpiece! I literally could not put it down except out of necessity. Fanny is truly a stick-in-the-mud, but with good reason. She tries so hard to gain acceptance from her new family by doing everything for them, that she loses herself in the process. She so seldom laughed or had fun, that when she did it brought a smile to my face as well. I so wanted her to find her mouth even if I had to shake her to bring that about! lol I honestly didn't care who Fanny ended up with as long as she was happy and I wasn't at all sure who that "someone" would be until almost the very end of the book. I love unpredictable and that's why I so enjoyed this "out of the box" Amish book with its capricious characters! You don't have to be an Amish book lover or even a Jane Austen fan to thoroughly relish this enjoyable, never boring new release! Be sure to order your copy today!

What she didn't expect was being send off to her moms family in Ohio. When she arrives she tries to find her place. Now 8 years later she still is trying to find her place and also she is trying to find the love of her life, or has she already found him?
I really really enjoyed this book, Sarah has really knocked it out of the park with this book oh who am I kidding she always does. I have to admit I have never read anything Jane Austen and I know this book is mirrored after one story, however I feel this book was very much a twisted cinderella story. I loved the sassiness, but the tender heart of Fanny. I hated, ok maybe thats a strong word but I totally did not like Timothy, Naomi, or Mariam my dislike for them is because Sarah did an amazing job at connecting the reader with the characters. Sarah has a way in her books of making the reader connect in a way that you feel like you are catching up with a friend and not just reading a story and she has done that again in this book. There is nothing I did not like about this book. I loved that its a good christian/clean read. If you have never read any of her book seriously grab this one and have fun.
